Quantcast

Last spring, I was visiting Pixar Animation Studios in Emeryville, California as part of the ramp-up to the launch of Cars 3. But that wasn't the only film that the studio was gearing up for at the time... down a festive-looking hallway, animators were hard at work on another Disney•Pixar film for later in the year... Coco. I wasn't able to explore further than the entrance to that hallway, but in many ways it served as a metaphor for what was yet to come - a story of a boy that was about to enter a colorful, vibrant world filled with music, and at its core - family. Now available in-home (sent to us by Disney for review), Coco is a film that families will want to experience again and again. Beware that the following contains major "spoilers" for those who have yet to see the film.

This #HolidayWishGuide Special Feature is presented by Disney Consumer Products, Córdoba Guitars & Guitar Center in collaboration with The Rock Father™

Disney•Pixar's Coco is a beautiful film - a critically-acclaimed hit that has managed to win over audiences around the world and here in the U.S. where it topped the box office for three straight weeks. Coco is also a very musical film, one that captures the cultural flair of its Mexican backdrop, opening up a new world of sound for many. When you think about guitars that are also "movie merchandise," the first thing that comes to mind are usually little more than toys with strings - but for Coco an opportunity was present to do something special, and that's exactly what's happened with the Disney•Pixar Coco x Córdoba Collection. Available now at Guitar Center, this new assortment of real guitars is inspired by Coco, and priced and sized just right for both beginning players, or experienced guitar slingers looking for the perfect travel-sized guitar!

I'm a little bummed. Back in July, one of the many highlights of Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim was an early look at footage from Disney•Pixar's INCREDIBLES 2 during the animation panel. In it, we got a glimpse at a few things, one of which I can certainly relate to - Mr. Incredible as an at-home dad, and what happens when he falls asleep and the kids start to play. That footage has never been seen outside of Hall D23, and with the release of the first public teaser for INCREDIBLES 2, you're still not getting to see it... at least not yet. Ahead of its theatrical debut alongside COCO later this week, take a look at the INCREDIBLES 2 teaser below!

At the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Disney Animation took to the stage in Hall D23 (introduced by Alan Horn, pictured above) to give audiences some new insight into what's coming down the pipeline from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar and DisneyToon Studios. I was in attendance for the presentation (I was tweeting live from the floor) and got a first-hand look at some incredible things that were shown for the very first time - some of which can be shared with you now, while others you'll have to wait to see. What's certain is that there's a stellar lineup ahead, including some much-requested new chapters of fan-favorite franchises, along with some completely unexpected new films. Here's the details...

As the 2017 edition of the D23 Expo draws to a close, closing the book on another installment of "The Ultimate Disney Fan Event," the news is really just getting started. I'm still here in Anaheim, getting ready to head back to Chicago on the red eye - and much of what I've seen has yet to be revealed. I did get a rare look backstage in the growing "Hall D23," and alongside all the technical magic, much of the talent involved with the next few years of entertainment from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm was on-hand to drop the curtain on a few surprises. So what did all of these actors and filmmakers do while hanging out in the pipe-and-drape "green rooms?" They had fun, and made some videos - many of which are now on Instagram. From Jon Favreau representing THE LION KING, to the voices of the Disney Princesses, the cast of STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, MARY POPPINS and a host of AVENGERS and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, take a look at some of what happened backstage...
